Make More Noise: Suffragettes in Silent Film

With a title inspired by Emmeline Pankhurst’s speech, the BFI presents over 20 silent archive films combining gloriously anarchic comedies, newsreels and rarely seen footage with a specially commissioned live score by Lillian Henley. A fascinating insight into women’s suffrage.
